Slinky, that sounds like a good plan! Hope it works - I can sense that you are really feeling the time pressure of the deadline of when you leave for Japan, here's hoping we put you on the plane 2-3 months pregnant, hey! I am 28 weeks on Thursday and think I will relax a lot come that day, from what the Obs told me if they had to pull baby out (or if he came early) he would have a long stay in NICU/Special Care but would be okay. My first DS spent 5 and a half weeks in Special Care, so I know what that means. I have gone ahead and bought all the things I would need for a preemie birth, so am feeling as prepared as possible. Of course I would much rather got to term but as the Obs tells me, I'm not the one in charge of that particular decision.

Pink, just looked at your ticker...5 days to go!!! I am so looking forward to hearing your announcement very soon (I'm also happy to announce it for you , felt very privileged to be able to do that for Mum4nay!)
Slinky, How frustrating!!! the meds kick in quickly and get that troublesome thyroid under control pronto!
Trying, I am so pleased to see that tomorrow you will hit the magic 28wk mark I hope there is some relief for you in knowing that bubba has an excellent chance even with an early entry. I will continue to that he is staying put for the long haul. I'm also sorry if my earlier comments came off as flippant. It certainly wasn't intended that way at the time.
Where are our latest UTD pin up girls?? Millie...yoo hoo Spot? Hope all is going fabulously
Also wondering if Crofty is around??
Fi, how are you coping being back from Bali and back in the rat race? Hope your little boy blue is treating you well
AFM, unfortunately, my cycle has been cancelled. I was having a good response to the low dose FSH. Only 7 days of stims and my E2 had climbed nicely and I even had 3 follies on such a low dose...go ovaries! However, my lining started out not great and unfortunately went backwards at the last scan I was feeling pretty devastated, just feel the roadblocks are never ending and at the back of my mind was a fear that perhaps my endo could be permanently damaged by all the intervention I've had
So I triggered yesterday (DH and I felt compelled not to waste the big follie which is ridiculous, but anyway! ) and now I wait 2 weeks for AF and can start again.
I had a very assertive phone call with my FS yesterday and insisted he let me try viagra pessaries next cycle, to which he FINALLY agreed even though he isn't a 'believer'. My research seems to continually point to success with this for women with chronically thin endos, so I want to at least try it.
Trying to not get too disheartened and remember having a baby for us is definitely a marathon not a sprint!

Starfish - it is a marathon and I know at times it feels hopeless ... I felt this so much I gave up! I admire your persistence and send all my hopes that success is just around the corner for you.
Things with me are fantastic, I am still so completely over the moon that even the rat race can't burst my happiness bubble. I'm happier than I ever remember being and so now all of the heartache and struggle that was present previously is so distant. Already totally in love with my little boy and feeling more and more confident with every little movement I feel him make.
It is still unbelievable.
Hoping lots of little miracles are lined up waiting for their time for all you ladies.

Starfish, Oh B****r on your lining!!! I can feel your deep, profound disappointment and frustration. I really, really wish this wasn't happening to you - its so unfair. I think I read elsewhere though that you haven't started the Progynova yet? Is that right? For me, until I took Progynova for three weeks I didn't have an adequate lining, response can take some time. I also know of many other women who have taken 2 cycles on Progynova to get an adequate lining response after adhesion removal. And while I don't in any way want to disrespect your FS, I know through my Asherman's support group the name of an A-List specialist in endometrium in Sydney who a lot of women have turned to with success - maybe it is worth getting a second opinion? Don't be disheartened, remember that you had cervical involvement (as did I) and it can take a little while for the biofeedback mechanism to get itself back into gear. Hang in there

starfish - just wanted to jump on and give you a truckload of . You are magnificent and unceasingly gracious and brave in the face of everything you are having to endure to get your precious little bub. Good on you for bringing FS around to the viagra. Whatever it takes. You take good care

Starfish - I am absolutely gutted for you, you have had so many freaking obstacles, it really is so so unfair. Surely the universe can cut you some slack. Glad you have been assertive about trying the viagra... what isn't worth a shot! Thinking of you and sending many cyber hugs - you always handle these things with such amazing poise and are here to support the rest of us too
Yep, 5 days to go, DD kindly brought a cold/flu home from pre-school which knocked me completely, so keeping legs firmly crossed hoping for a day or 2 more to recover before anything happens

Slinky - How frustrating with the thyroid, I hope it gets sorted quickly and you can move forward ASAP!! I sent you a friend request, then u can see pics on my profile by clicking on my name!
T42 - So glad you are at the 28 week mark
Mum4nay - hope all going well with your new little man

Fiona, Trying42, Slinky and Pink, all the inspiration I need is right here in this thread provided by you wonderful women who also have run the marathon and are in various stages of reaching the finish line!
Trying, on the protocol I was on, I was due to start progynova after ovulation. I have started it now anyway and should have about 5 weeks on it in total before next possible transfer. I found your suggestions far more thoughtful and ultimately calming than that provided by my FS TBH!
When I asked him about the possible reasons for the poor lining development/regression he had nothing to offer, in fact when I asked if it could be due to permanent damage to the basal layer he replied 'it's possible'...and that was it! If you wouldn't mind PM'ing me the details for the endometrium specialist I will keep it up my sleeve as there is no way I want to risk my precious remaining embies on a sub standard environment.
Pink, hope you are feeling better soon and fighting fit to deliver your beautiful bub Jess must be getting very excited about the impending arrival of her little brother or sister. We're on a bit of a roll with the boys lately, Trying, Fiona, Mum4nay...I wonder what colour your bundle will be?!!

Starfish, have sent you a PM.

Mum4nay - Yayyyy!!!! Congratulations on the safe arrival of Tom, following a quick intense labour. 3 hrs! I'm sure Nathan is going to love having a little brother
Starf1sh - I'm so sorry to read of your cancelled cycle but agree with you regarding not wasting embies. I had a few cancelled cycles because my lining was too thick Dr Wazza does a day 2 scan and it has to be under 4mm. Trying has obviously given you great advice, so I think it's just a matter of a month or two before it all comes together beautifully. On the positive side, a thin lining is a good start. As Wazza says 'it's no good planting new grass on old grass'. Looking forward to your BFP
'Hi' to Pink, Slinky, Spot, Crofty, Trying and everyone else I've missed. I pop in and check on you all waiting to celebrate your BFPs. Wishing you all the luck in the world.
I'm going fine. Had a food poisoning scare this Monday night but Smudge seems to be none the worse for it (was organic beef mince I cooked fresh at home - obviously contaminated with salmonella at some prior point). I have lots of reassuring all day sickness and reflux, and my 12 week scan is booked for next Thursday (when I'll be 12.5 weeks). So great to hit 12 weeks this weekend I can't wait for you all to tell me about your MS and tiredness. Its going to be a great year for you. Heaps of
